A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Each one of our Dementia Care Programs is custom-built to attentively serve those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our Valparaiso Dementia care programs help not only the client but the family as a whole in Schererville, Michigan City, and other nearby cities, by helping to ease the anxiety, depression, confusion, and isolation often associated with the disease.
We appreciate and cherish the uniqueness of each person receiving our care. Not only is each person at a unique stage in his or her disease; they have their own hobbies, favorite foods, favorite music, etc. Our Person-First Dementia Care emphasizes and values this individuality, so that everyone within our program is treated as the dynamic individual that they are, and not as a ‘case’.
PERSON-FIRST DEMENTIA CARE
Through our Dementia Care Program, your loved one is catered to as a unique person and not solely as someone afflicted with a disease.
Our compassionate caregivers providing our Valparaiso elderly care services are highly-trained in how to personalize the care they provide, so that each person served in Schererville, Michigan City, and other nearby areas is supported in living a full life with purpose and happiness. We start off the caregiving relationship by having each client fill out a “Who I Am” booklet, so that the most defining traits about each client are captured. Questions include:
What makes me happy?
What makes me laugh?
What frustrates or distresses me?
When do I feel accomplished?
Answers to the questions in our “Who Am I” booklet help our Valparaiso dementia care coordinator build the most effective dementia care plan for your loved one in Schererville, Michigan City, and surrounding communities. We pride ourselves also on a thorough caregiving selection process complemented by ongoing consultation. This eases the process for your family and ensures that everyone involved is happy with and confident in the chosen caregiver and plan.
